Field 2 is a complex and refreshing farmhouse ale that emphasizes the unique flavors of rustic yeast from a farm brewery on the French-Belgian border. With delicate notes of wild herbs, spices, pear, and straw, itís no surprise that farmhouse ales once quenched field workers. Traditional hops from Bavaria and Slovenia lend pronounced aroma of lemongrass and earth to a gentle finish.
With ingredients that traveled far to come together, Field 2 is yet another transplant to New York that decided to stay. The name is taken from our preferred field in New York, found on the Great Lawn of Central Park.

jgb9348 (5173) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Hazy golden coloured body with a thickish white head, about three centimetres tall that fades fast. Aroma of grass, coriander seed, light yeast, corn and a touch of curacao and citrus-based sweetness. Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavours at first with a good coriander seed freshness and a light citrus twang and sweetness and a touch of metal on the end. Aftertaste shows a little grassy freshness with a little sweetness and a good finish of herbs and light hops. Overall, a nice beer with a good profile and a steady complexity - nice to try, and even though it isnít amazing, a good beer all around. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Murrayís Cheese in New York, New York on 20-June-2015 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 24-September-2015.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is floral, herbal, and earthy. Farmhouse funk is plenty there. Taste is a little bit sweet. Plenty of floral notes in there. Kind of a standard saison, but has a bit of depth and complexity to it.
